Quantitative Public Health Data Literacy is back!

NYU School of Global Public Health and the GrassROOTS Community Foundation



Quantitative Public Health Data Literacy Training

  • Get real-world data literacy training
  • Explore. Visualize. Model. Make inferences


The global pandemic increased the public’s demand for information. Almost daily, media and policymakers present numbers on testing, deaths, hospitalization rates, and vaccine distribution. This information often includes data visualizations and tables viewers must interpret to better understand the pandemic’s scope and its impact on local communities and countries worldwide. As a result, there is a need for a new vocabulary (e.g., flattening the curve, epidemiology, public health, pandemic) around public health and data literacy.


The third installment of this course is perfect for health care students, administrators, educators, policymakers, social media influencers, publicists, journalists, and law enforcement.


We highly encourage those who live and work with members of vulnerable populations to apply.


June 6 – June 29
Mondays and Wednesdays

The 4-week bootcamp is offered free to all students.

Deadline to apply is June 1, 2022
